Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has signed a bill into law to introduce a 75% quota for Ukrainian-language content on television channels, according to the presidential press service.

He announced this at a meeting with journalists on Tuesday, June 6, thanking them for the proposal to introduce the quota and bring the Ukrainian language back onto Ukrainian television. "You're carrying the palm here. These are your initiative and proposals, which I just supported, and lawmakers did brilliantly at their work, and I had great pleasure and great honor to sign the law," Poroshenko said.

In his words, this decision made the Ukrainian language more protected.

"No one is against other languages being used on TV, but it is unacceptable that the share of the Ukrainian language on any Ukrainian channel is 15, 20, 25%. Thank God we've managed to protect it," he said.
